 Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe. – Oprah Winfrey

dsc_7898For most of us, majority of our time is spent at work and that means that most times when we shop, we purchase items that would be suitable for both work and going out. A few years ago while studying in London, I got a part time job with a company that was outsourced by a law firm to do all their admin work. After I was hired, I almost had a heart attack when they told me that I would be required to wear a uniform. I was simply mortified! It felt like they were taking away my identity by making me dress like everyone else🙂. Continue reading

“Faith makes all things possible. Love makes all things easy. Hope makes all things work.” -Unknown!This has been a huge weekend for New York as thousands of people gather together at the 9/11 memorial site to remember the friends and loved ones that they lost 15 years ago. I don’t know what it is about this particular day but it always brings immense sadness to my heart. The sad part is that the world has not become a better place since 9/11, if anything, it has gotten worse.

He found himself a new land where he settled down and had a family. Continue reading
